2.1.1 What you will learn
Alternative models have flourished in the last decades to solve the increased demand of new houses and to answer current society needs. At the same time, the increasing number of new houses in the Global South implies new challenges in the management of the housing stock in order to avoid quick neighborhood deterioration and devaluation.
This section will review the opportunities for alternative approaches in affordable housing provision and management in the context of China, Ghana, Chile and The Netherlands. We will discuss the role of the State, the society, the private sector and the third sector in housing policies, exploring opportunities for ownership and rental models in different contexts.
